Purchasing Electronics

The University aims to purchase electronic products that are certified by EPEAT, the top global sustainability certification for IT products that the Green Electronics Council manages.

The materials that make up electronics can be created in environmentally and socially damaging ways, can contain toxic materials, can use high levels of energy and can have a short product lifetime. Luckily, EPEAT certified products aim to counter these damaging trends, by providing more sustainable alternatives to other such products.

Feel free to peruse EPEAT’s product registry to help guide future purchases of your own!
